    Pros

    * Gallup's leadership really cares about every single person in this organization.
    * Gallup practices what it preaches about hiring for talent and wanting that to grow and develop over time.
    * Gallup spends lots of time and dollars on innovation to always be on top of what clients need next.

    Cons

    * Gallup is a company full of high achievers and some times it is hard to take down time because there is so much to do and so many great things going on that I don't want to miss out any of the action.

    Advice to Management

    * Thank you for your leadership and your philanthropy.
    * You are the guiding rock and provide great vision for us to follow.

    Pros

    *Truly a strengths-based culture where the focus is what you do best and helping you build upon that.
    *Leadership cares about you as a person and constantly encourages your development
    *Pay is competitive for the market, if you want to earn more, simply perform better and be willing to take on more responsibility.. it's as easy as that.
    *You will have close friends at work
    *I've never woken up on a Monday morning and haven't wanted to go to work
    *It's a financially secure company that is only growing. No issues with job security.

    Cons

    If you don't enjoy being friends with coworkers, working on challenging and engaging projects, or working for a company who's mission is to truly help the world through people, you won't enjoy working here.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing. It can be easy to get wrapped up in what is "urgent," but keep what is important and your people as your #1 priority. That will take you far.

    I have been working at Gallup full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Having the time of my life as a longtime Gallup veteran. Our work around strengths, engagement, and workplaces has never been more inspiring to clients who are some of the biggest brands in the world.

    Our enterprise business is growing steadily, while our new mid market sales team is breaking growth and impact records every day.

    Cons

    Disruption to our legacy customer and brand research conducted via phone has been massive over the last 2 years for obvious reasons. Has been hard to watch the fallout with several long time colleagues.

    Pros

    It is a culture of strengths. We are known by our name and our strengths. There is almost unlimited access to data. The leaders in the company like the C.E.O. have an open door policy for any person at Gallup.

    Cons

    The culture of Best Friend at Work "BFAW" makes departures emotionally challenging for low performers, hence much of the vitriol seen on this site.
